So what else do I do outside of triathlon? Since November 2016, I have been volunteering for @keen_la (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now) where we play sports with children who have disabilities. I happened to stumble upon this amazing organization and fell in love with the kids and volunteers since day 1. I have learned so much from this incredible experience and am so blessed to have these wonderful kids in my life. They face the biggest challenges in life with even bigger smiles. Their compassion is unparalleled and I hope I’ve helped them as much as they’ve helped me. This year I ran my first ever LA Marathon for KEEN and raised almost $7k, but next year I will be racing @ironmantri Oceanside 70.3 in hopes of raising $10k. Giving back to those in need is so important and I urge you all to get involved with any organization that means a lot to you 🙏🏽
Did you know that it was my farewell trip ? It was counting down my last week in Bali, a lot of uncertainties questions were pumping in my head at time, I would never expect that I've met a beautiful mind likes you. *Hahahaha when the ripple jeans was the best 😆✌️

I finally had the pleasure of meeting @traufer in real life this morning! I'm super jealous of Tim, he's doing an amazing job with @circlesohm managing construction projects and volunteers that are helping to change people's lives. Definitely give them both a follow to see the work they're doing in the East End. Can't wait to pitch in! #volunteering#construction#Garfield
It’s been a busy summer getting ready to re-open our safe spaces to students! But we wanted to take the time to thank @waltdisneyworld for honoring our founder Juliet Cahow earlier this spring as one of their 15 Shining Star Award recipients as part of the Disney Dreamer and Doer program. Juliet was incredibly humbled to have represented all of Osceola County at the celebration and is thankful to have our story shared by our supporters at Walt Disney World in the Community.
4 course delicious dinner for those in need @newfriendshomelesscntr. Thank you to ALL the fantastic cooks & thank you @beautiful_maria13 for sponsoring the dinner, you are a blessing! Thank you head Chef @dan.hosseini for leading the team with your expertise!
Thankful for all the volunteers @newfriendshomelesscntr
Today was national #ClearTheShelters day, so we had fee-waived adoptions at the @dekalbanimals shelter in Chamblee, Georgia, metro #Atlanta . I hung out with my favorite shelter dog Fauna, but no one wanted to adopt her. How is this even possible? She is beyond perfect. So mellow, easy to walk, so incredibly tolerant! No barking, fine with other dogs, uninterested in cats, likes kids, just wants to hang out with her person or persons. She's estimated to be four and a half years old, and she's lived at the shelter since February! Give this girl a forever home already! #adoptFauna

Found this nifty #selfcare piechart and needed a little adjustment. 👌
Yes, I sometimes sacrifice a little sleep to love on #allthedogs 🐶😘 and #volunteering with horsies motivate me on an otherwise unplanned weekend.
Mari berkatarsis ria!! Hai nak, apa kabar? Apakah semangatmu masih menggelora di tengah euforia kemerdekaan ini? Semoga obor kecil ini dapat memekikkan bara juangmu. "Kita bangsa besar, kita bukan bangsa tempe. Kita tidak akan mengemis, kita tidak akan minta-minta, apalagi jika bantuan-bantuan itu diembel-embeli dengan syarat ini syarat itu! Lebih baik makan gaplek tetapi merdeka, daripada makan bistik tapi budak." –Ir. Sukarno.
Masih terngiang jelas perkataan dari pahlawan heroik kita itu nak. Kekayaan alammu begitu melimpah, tuah ruah. Namun sayang jika tak diiringi dengan kesejahteraan rakyatnya, tak diimbangi dengan mutu pendidikannya, tak diselaraskan dengan kemajuan pembangunannya. Apalah arti kemerdekaan itu, jika kamu, aku, kita tak lagi berjuang mengisi kemerdekaan. Nafas perjuangan itu terhenti begitu saja, kita larut memperdebatkan perkara perbedaan, kita nafsu berbicara tentang intoleransi, hasut menghasut hingga lupa kaum papa banyak yang mengemis dan terlupa. Jangan biarkan disparitas ini semakin lebar nak. Keberhasilan Indonesia bukan lagi berpihak pada pemerintah, namun seluruh elemen masyarakat harus bergerak dalam mensinergikan kemajuan bumi pertiwi ini. Kamu pemuda?
maka ayo ikut mengabdi bersama NAYS Social Projects di Labuan Bajo, agar kita tahu betapa kaya dan beragamnya Indonesia. #nationalyouthinspiration#naysindonesia#nays2018#nayssocialprojects#pemudainspirasi#socialprojects#volunteering#empowerment#labuanbajo#bulukumba

Colombia 🇨🇴 @fundaninoslosandes where my heart stays every time when we go back to Bogota. One of the oldest NGO in Latin America. For 35 years that this organization exists more than 60.000 kids life’s have been changed here for better or even saved. In one of the houses were we’ve stayed last 3 days live 62 kids aged from 7 to 17 years old. Most of them are orphans, those who however have parents can’t stay with them. Their stories and backgrounds shocked me..It’s strictly forbidden to take pictures of their faces.
I’ve never met such a lovely kids, especially considering their previous tough experience it’s hard to believe. They really in need of affection, attention and understanding. That’s why we here. #worldlifeexperience ##traveling#travel#travelgram#travelblogger#travelphotography#volunteer#volunteering#bethechange#bestjobever#orphankids#colombia 🇨🇴 #Bogota#kids
Life is constantly reminding us of what we don’t have, but what about all that we do have? What makes you special? What do you have to offer the world around you? What do you enjoy? Find the things that you do love about yourself. They’re enough. ✨📌
This was definitely not on my schedule yesterday...but opportunity knocked and I answered. I saw a shared post by Dominique Johnson (whom I never met...until today) and it stated that she was in desperate need of a hairstylist for AFT's prom night. Long story short...I spoke with her she told me what was needed and I am so grateful that I was able to fill the need. I styled these three ladies for their big night.
